The Saginaw County Jail is replacing its orange prisoner jumpsuits with horizontal black and white striped jumpsuits because the popular prison life series “Orange Is the New Black” has led locals to make fashion choices inspired by the behind-bars set, a sheriff said. It’s not cool to be an inmate of the Saginaw County Jail,” Sheriff William Federspiel told Reuters. Some of the 500 jail inmates in the central Michigan county have complained about the new jumpsuits, Federspiel said.
